concert time

Last night my boyfriend and I saw Foster the People in Central Park. Yes, it was awesome. Also, I’m pretty sure that aside from the children, I was the only sober person at the concert. That is, assuming the children hadn’t been drinking.  Even I know that when you’re sick you shouldn’t drink.

I was going to bring my real camera but I thought that crowds + possible rain + camera = bad combination. So you’ll just need to excuse the amazing quality of my iPhone photos.

You see that sky? Yea…it didn’t end well.

With about 15 minutes left of the concert, the sky started to fall in the form of giant rain drops. And it didn’t stop. So we walked the 13 blocks home in the pouring rain. I am so glad I wore the shoes that I did and I was very bitter that I didn’t bring an umbrella. We definitely got some strange looks on 5th Ave, that is for sure.

I had an “after the rain outfit post” but I think I’ll save that for a rainy day. No pun intended. Or was it?

    Based on my own Foster the People concert experience, I’m surprised the cloud of weed lingering overhead didn’t protect you from the rain.

    Rain aside, I bet that was a great concert! I love them. And I think we all need to start posting “after the rain” outfit posts. As part of that “things im afraid to tell/show you” series.

    Ohhh that sounds like so much fun, even the rain part. Seriously.

    I agree with Alex! I want to live near Central Park.

    I love summer concerts (minus the occasional rain)!

    You better post that photo one day. But at least the rain held out for most of the show, right? Looks fantastical!

    I’m so jealous! Not of the rain, though.

    PS – I know that pun was totally intended.

    So. Effing. Jealous.

    Except for the rain part. But even you would look hot sopping wet, so maybe jealous about that part, actually. Sigh.

    Sounds fun despite the rain. I’d love to see them in concert! The last photo is actually really cool looking. Seems like you were pretty close! Oh my gosh..as I’m writing this “Pumped Up Kicks” came on my Pandora, no lie. :)

    Ahh, I’m jealous. But not of the rain. That sucks. If there anything worse than getting stuck in the rain without an umbrella? It ruins my day more than it should, but I hate HATE the rain. :) Happy weekend!!
